Traditional audits allow you to see quality at a high level and help you determine if there may be problems with your coding.  What these typically episodic audits don’t tell you, however, is the root cause of these problems at an individual coder level and how you may be able to address them to improve coding quality and compliance, as well as optimize reimbursement.  himagine has developed a performance driven auditing approach to pinpoint and correct coding deficiencies and deliver higher quality to our clients.  This auditing approach is an integral part of the managed coding solution we implemented at BJC HealthCare and in this video, you will hear from Terri Eichelmann, MBA, RHIA, the Director of HIM for BJC HealthCare, who has worked closely with himagine and seen firsthand the benefits of a performance driven approach to auditing.
